low key musing on a complex man
13 October 2010 | by (japan) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this documentary. It was well written and thought out and had a lot of good content in it. A nice interview with Andy's brother Michael, some good photos and clips of Andy and a lot of thought provoking material to help you think about Kaufman the artist and what he was trying to achieve. It helped me appreciate his art more which is a good thing. Director Maloney gives you his conclusions after having had a good search through the facts, but their still lingers the possibility of Andy's ultimate trick. Its really a win win for Kaufman. If he faked his death - win, if he made everyone think he faked his death - win. The editing was a little lose in places and the low hum of a badly recorded voice over could have been better but it didn't really hurt the enjoyment of this video. A good effort on an interesting subject.
